Hundreds of Google employees walked out of their office buildings in protest of the company's handling of sexual harassment allegations against executives.The Thursday morning protest took place at Google offices around the world. Employees in London, Tokyo, Singapore and Dublin walked out earlier Thursday to protest the tech giant’s reported handling of sexual misconduct allegations.  In some places, the protesting employees used megaphones to express their displeasure at the company's management while showing support for victims of sexual harassment. In others, they stayed inside, gathering in lobbies or conference rooms.In Chicago, a crowd of more than 200 Google workers flooded out of the office and onto the sidewalk just after 11 a.m. Some carried coffee and chatted with colleagues, and others waved signs that read, "I will not sit idly by," "Not OK, Google" and "Time’s up, tech."  In Sunnyvale, California, hundreds of employees were seen walking out of their office building.The backlash was prompted by an article in The New York Times last week that revealed that Google had paid millions of dollars in exit packages to male executives accused of harassment, while staying silent about the transgressions.  Video below.  GOOGLE IT: New aerial footage shows Google employees walking out of the building in Sunnyvale, California, in protest of the company's handling of sexual harassment allegations against executives.
